Wood Harvesting Permits

woodharvestingThe Parks and Recreation Department offers wood harvesting permits to individuals that may want to remove dead and downed trees from the park system. 

No person can remove wood from the park system unless they have a valid permit approved by the Parks and Recreation Department.  If a permit is approved staff will outline where and how much wood can be removed.  No harvesting of wood is allowed outside this permit.

If interested in a wood harvesting permit please call for more information and for permit requirements:
